Mission

The primary mission of Danville Community College Disability Services is to ensure that all qualified students with disabilities have equal access to educational programs and services. Disability Services facilitates access to reasonable accommodations for students with disabilities in accordance with their documentation guidelines.  To support their educational pursuit and achievement, Disability Services provides students with comprehensive and ongoing support, advocacy efforts, and assistance with the transition to the college environment. Disability Services strives to broaden disability awareness throughout the campus community.

To the student

Disability Services believes that every student has the capability to be successful at DCC! An understanding of your own unique learning needs and learning style is critical to your success in the classroom. I can assist you in identifying these learning strengths and preferences. Specific accommodations are unique to every student and every course. I am dedicated and committed to assisting you in your educational and career goals while at DCC. Ultimately, my hope is that I can support you in advocating for yourself as a student at DCC and in your chosen career field.
